    Sounds like you might have unchecked adding python to your system's PATH during the installation. Try uninstalling Python, then reinstall making sure to "install for all users" and "add to PATH" when given the options.

    From Rags to Automated Rags... my attempt at automating Forex.

    Nice! I use GitLab's free tier account. Using a proper VCS is a must even if you're new to programming. Such a life saver. Great start. Obviously you shouldn't expect much or anything out of a moving average crossover strat, but as a dummy to just get your process / workflow down it's fine...

    Introduction

    That's fine. There's a few users who are at the same stage or still working toward their full stack here. You should check out @sven 's posts about his journey. Are you just manual trading your own account right now?

    Where should I start? (High IQ individual)

    Hello and welcome. I'm not gonna lie, your post really comes off like you're here to troll people. If you are being sincere though, know that expecting to master the markets and algo trading within a week is unrealistic. Some of the smartest people in the world fail at trading despite both...

    Despite some aggressive spam filters, once in a while a spam bot still gets through and makes a post. So I've implemented first post moderation for all new members.

    Let me introduce myself

    Honestly, the best way I could describe Brazil's markets would be "kinda just making things up as they go." Like, they once rang the bell early so everyone can go home to watch a football/soccer game. Or how they've changed their policy on daylight savings time adjustments based on what mood...

    Python Development Environment / Jack's Technology Stack

    Zero reason to ever need to do this if you're a good actor on the exchange and following any compliance rules set by your broker. So I'm really tilting my head here on why you're asking. Let me ask you: Why do you think you'd get "blocked" for your actions? Or do you mean things like polling...

    Python Development Environment / Jack's Technology Stack

    I just upgraded to 3.8.0 a few months ago. Nothing major changed in my code for this, I was just waiting for all the libraries I used to release something stable on 3.8. A new thing I'm experimenting with now is running python embedded within my project. Like, literally putting the whole python...

    From Rags to Automated Rags... my attempt at automating Forex.

    You're putting a lot of effort into organizing and planning your approach. Nice! That said, you're going to risk getting caught up in a lot of the small details and that will slow your progress down. Don't get me wrong, nothing you wrote down so far screams "getting lost in the weeds".. but...
